Cambridge - Paris Seminar - Inside Prehistoric Societies: Dialogue on the epistemologies of Prehistory

A bi-national series of exchange seminars held both in Cambridge and Paris. A total of six sessions will take place. Each session will focus on a particular topic, on which a Cambridge speaker will be mirrored by a Paris speaker. They will give an overview of the main epistemological trends of the discipline in relation to their own research and give their views on future directions emerging in the study of Prehistoric societies.
